How To Stream The White House Correspondents' Dinner, Because This POTUS' Last Will Be Unmissable
Excited for the upcoming White House Correspondents' Dinner? This Saturday, April 30, fans and foes of President Obama will gather to watch Larry Wilmore roast the presidential candidates and see the president make a few lighthearted jabs of his own at the haters. Although the White House has not yet announced a live stream — don't worry, hopefully they will — the event will play on various media Saturday night. Where can potential viewers watch this hilariously satirical display of American politics? Here is how to stream the White House Correspondents' Dinner from home.
C-SPAN is stoked to have the opportunity to air something that entertains people. They have already played previews to get the masses pumped for the big day. According to the schedule for Saturday, the network is most definitely showing the event, which means there's a strong possibility it will stream from the C-SPAN website — particularly since they have done so in years past.
The affair will begin around 6:30 p.m. ET and continue until around 11:15 p.m. ET, according to the White House Correspondents' Association.
In addition to the sleep network — I only say this repeatedly because I actually love C-SPAN, truly — MSNBC will also play the Correspondents' Dinner. Their live events page is likely the best bet to find it streaming online, but if not, there is a handy search bar at the top of their page that can take hopeful viewers to the promised land.
Again, the White House is likely going to air the event via their live streaming page, as they do for mostly anything that pertains to the Obama administration.
Any other major media network, such as CNN or Fox News, is a fairly certain bet for catching the dinner.
So what's next? Take a seat somewhere comfortable, grab a politically-inclined friend or two, have a beverage — and some type of food, obviously — and get ready to laugh. This is President Obama's final White House Correspondents' Dinner, and although many of the celebrity faces are new — like Hope Solo, Gladys Knight, Will and Jada Smith, and Steve Aoki — the proceeding moments will prove funny, awkward, at times uncomfortable, and always bound to inspire conversation. Sit back and enjoy the evening, America.
